Examiner Office, 28th April.
My dear Sir, -
We sent to Mr. Colburn on Saturday last a Poem by my Uncle Leigh - a translation of the "Bacchus in Tuscany" of Redi, with notes, &c.- Mr. C. had previously declined this as a separate publication, from the number of things on his mind; but it occurred to us, that /you/ it might be turned into an amusing & useful article for the Magazine, with which idea we have put it into his hands. Conceiving that it will go to Mr. Campbell for his opinion, & knowing poetical dilatouriness from experience, I write to request the favor of your expediting the affair, so far as it may be in your power, & getting a speedy answer; as we have other views, in case Mr. C. should not think it good for the N.M.
Your's [sic] very truly,
Henry L. Hunt.
We reckon the MS will make about two magazine sheets; but the notes might be abridged, if thought advisable.
